To support and thank local medical staff working tirelessly on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) frontline, Assemblyman Wayne P. DeAngelo alongside Stephen Aldrich, Business Manager of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 269 with other union representatives, coordinated and delivered life-saving Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and much needed sticky buns to area hospitals. Personal Protective Equipment have become a widely needed resource to medical workers throughout the country since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The men and women in our hospitals and medical facilities have been working day in and day out to keep our community healthy in this tough time,” said DeAngelo, “we need to back them up in this fight any way we can and show our appreciation, and we thank the members of IBEW Local 269 for their generosity at this time.”

As of April 22, 2020, a combined total of 12,000 masks and goggles have been donated to five area hospitals through this effort. Assemblyman DeAngelo (D-Hamilton) who is the Assistant Business Manager and President of the IBEW Local 269 has been working with Aldrich to purchase, coordinate, and deliver the PPE to area hospitals.
